Football

Tamorrion Terry broke out in the Garnet and Gold Spring Game, but head coach Willie Taggart has had his eye on the speedy wideout for months.

“He’s one of the first guys that I was able to remember his name because he was making plays every day out in practice,” Taggart told Seminoles.com. Read more about Terry below.

In 137 days the Seminoles will host Virginia Tech on a Monday to kick off the 2018 college football season in Tallahassee — the first regular season game of the Taggart era. Read up on the ’Noles next opponent’s quarterback situation, holes at O-line and linebacker and health issues at receiver here.

Curt Weiler and Wayne McGahee III of the Tallahassee Democrat project the FSU depth chart prior to the arrival of summer enrollees. Check out the lineup below.

Recruiting News

Jeremiah Criddell, a four-star cornerback out of Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei High School narrowed his 21 offers down to a top five on Twitter yesterday — Florida State made the cut, along with Taggart’s former school, Oregon. FSU offered Criddell two weeks ago after his unofficial visit. He is the no. 6 player CB in the 2019 class and the no. 12 player in California.

Jaren Mangham, a four-star athlete (RB/OLB) from Detroit (MI) Cass Technical High School released his top 16 schools yesterday. 16 may seem like a lot of schools, but Mangham — the no. 22 athlete and no. 8 player in Michigan — holds 46 offers. Florida State was the only ACC school in the top 16.

Alumni

Auden Tate is looking to become just the third FSU wide receiver to be drafted in the past 10 years. For a school that produces such a high number of NFL players, it is an anomaly that so few players at wide out have their names called on draft night. Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times discusses this and Tate’s pre-draft expectations below.

Former FSU WR/DB Ermon Lane voiced his pleasure with Florida State’s recent jump to the no. 1 overall 2019 recruiting class.

Lane is expected to go undrafted, but recently met with the Jacksonville Jaguars, where a few other FSU alum happen to play.

Other Sports

The Florida State baseball put up a season-high 18 runs in a home win against the Stetson Hatters last night, in large part due to seven home runs. Read the recap of the ’Noles 26th win this season here.

Baseball America released a new Projected Field of 64 which has Florida State as a no. 2 seed.

Lance White, former FSU women’s basketball associate head coach, will be leaving Florida State to become the head coach at Pitt.

Jalen. D Wilson, a 6’6” four-star small forward from Denton (TX) Guyer High school picked up an offer from Florida State. Wilson is the third best player in Texas and a top 10 player at his position in the 2019 class.
